For episode 8 of season 4, Suzy brings you a Couture special. Demna Gvasalia, the creative director of Balenciaga, discusses his first Couture collection for the house and the revival of Balenciaga Haute Couture. In fact it’s the 50th couture collection for the brand, because Cristóbal Balenciaga’s final show was his 49th. Fifty-three years after the original Balenciaga salon was closed, the company’s haute couture has been revived for Autumn Winter 2021/22. The show was presented in Avenue George V with a famous modern audience, with François-Henri Pinault of the Kering luxury group, and hats by Philip Treacy.
